A Valentine treat - for free!
Back in 2002, Harlequin gave six authors the same opening paragraph and we came up with six different stories, depending on our respective sub-genres. Mine, naturally, was historical.
This is the paragraph:
Charlotte winced as an inebriated party–goer stepped on her foot, but she kept moving determinedly toward the doors that led to the balcony. The Duncans would be delighted with their party; it was clearly the event of the season, and their daughter had been successfully launched into society.
To see where I took the story next, here's an excerpt.
You can order A VALENTINE FROM HARLEQUIN: SIX DEGREES OF ROMANCE from eHarlequin. It's also available at Amazon.
Other authors in the anthology are Maggie Shayne, Catherine Spencer, Nancy Warren* and Michele Hauf.
* Trivia fact: Warren is my maiden name. As far as I know, we're not related.
Have a great weekend, everybody!
